tommy

i re-watched Tommy recently. it’s a bonkers film as we all know with moments of unpleasantness. but generally it’s a visual and sonic treat.
you HAVE to watch it in the 5:1 “Quintaphonic” surround mix. the music is mixed all over the place rather than the usual ‘cars zooming past behind your head’ type surround sound. this is how they originally showed it in cinemas. totally incredible.
How can a film about a deaf dumb blind kid be so fantastic, both visually and sonically, that you want to talk about it ?
